1970s Maxi dress PDF sewing pattern with long skirt, false bib bodice and angle sleeves

Mid 70’s fashion is all about liberation and freedom of choice. As the lines between appropriate behavior and appropriate apparel blurred, a girl could walk around in a baseball shirt and flared jeans one day and a flowing, romantic dress the next. The choice was hers.

With its ankle sweeping skirt and flowing style, the Maxi dress, was the Bohemian version of Victorian femininity. Empire waists and lace embellishment were often mixed with ethnic touches like false bibs and angel sleeves, while fabrics ranged from geometric stripes to delicate florals. Popular colors were dusty rose, Prussian blue, bottle green, rust and browns.

This pattern features the fashion elements described above and is period appropriate for a young girl of Julie’s era.
